Tell a lie big enough

According to our president, it is easier to buy a gun than a book or fresh vegetables.

That our president can say something so ridiculously wrong in public is mind boggling.  I would write a longer post deconstructing his statements, but I am afraid even thinking about what he said for too long would damage my brain.

Although I am considering taking bets on what Obama will say “buying guns is easier than _______” next.

I think I’m just going to end this with the popular meme:

I’m sorry that I’m having a hard time believing you due to your track record of being a lying liar that constantly lies out of your lying liar hole.

  1. To be fair, Our Nero Zero would be correct in stating that it’s easier for the average citizen to buy a gun than it would be for him to buy a clue.

    After all, Our Nero Zero wouldn’t even recognize a clue if it came up behind him, tapped him on the shoulder, and sang “I Am a Clueful Thing,” to the tune of “I Am a Pirate King.”

  2. I tire of the stream of lies, half-truths, distortions, and fabrications from the POTUS.

    It is so bad that I’m not sure which orifice they emanate from at any given moment.

    Yet, fools and Kool-aid drinkers still hang on his every word.

    Well, he can try to put his money where his mouth is and make a gun grab, but it will not end well.
    I say enough. Put up or shut up, man-boy.

    1. It’s an interesting variation on the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect. Those same “fools and Kool-aid drinkers” heard his “If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan” line, then lost their health plans and doctors (so they personally know the line was crap), yet they continue to hang on every speech as if it’s Gospel.

      Obama declares “Mission Accomplished” in Iraq and Afghanistan and says al-Qaeda is “on the run”. Countless military analysts say Iraq and Afghanistan are a mess, AQ is stronger than ever, and everyone knows (again) that Obama is full of crap. But his next speech, the “fools and Kool-aid drinkers” are believing every word. Again.

      Happens all the time, with politicians at all levels. They lie constantly, but people still believe them the next time they talk.

      If anyone wants to help me name this “politician” variation of the Gell-Mann Effect and make it go viral, that’d be awesome. I’m tentatively considering calling it the “Obama-Clinton Amnesia effect” (after Obama and both Clintons [especially Bill “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Clinton]), but I’ll welcome other suggestions. 🙂

      1. I always figured it was just strenuous denial to avoid cognitive dissonance, but the effect is pronounced, for sure.
        Sinister Bipolar Credulity Effect?
        Mind Controlled Zombie Syndrome?
        Electoral Brain Death?

  3. Obama is a desperate man these days and lies seem to be the only way to try and get someone on his side any more meaning the anti’s. It’s because any decent American knows he full of it.Hillary is the same way,either one is a slap in the face to a real American.

  4. Gun vs. book: well there’s a $2 book store within walking distance of where I live, which includes 1/2 off shelves outside the front door. There are also two pawn shops within walking distance which sell firearms for an average price of $600 or more and keep said firearms under lock and key and constant observation, so it’s at least 300x harder for me to buy a gun than a book based on price alone. Add in the mandatory background check I’m still required to submit to even though I’ve never failed one before(and, in fact, have passed checks with far more stringent requirements in the past, though the demographic here tells me that’s true of most people reading this), and I’m going to say no, no it is not easier to buy a gun than a book.

    “It’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable”
    Given I also have grocery stores within walking distance with stacks upon stacks of fresh vegetables for sale, plus a periodic farmer’s market in my city as well as the two closest neighboring cities, plus rural farming areas less than an hour’s drive away, including some owned by friends, the only real difficulty I’d have buying fresh vegetables would be convincing the owners not to give them to me instead. I can also buy speed loaders for revolvers(though those are model-specific, and I’ve only seen my particular model at gun shows), but I’ve only ever seen those at places that also sell firearms, and not all firearm stores I’ve seen also carry clips, so in some respects, it’s actually harder to buy clips than handguns, making this statement double-false.

  5. Let’s see if we can give the man the benefit of the doubt. In certain neighborhoods one can buy a gun simply by making a few discreet inquiries and handing over the requisite amount of money. Books on the other hand may be harder to come by if no one in the hood knows how to read them.
